This is the original, heavy-duty reflective film developed for F1 and IndyCars!
Our Gold Reflective Film has excellent heat reflective characteristics, yet it is very thin and easy to install. Reflects up to 750° F radiant heat and withstands continuous operating temperature (heat soak) of 500° F. Within the normal operating range, temperatures drop by up to 70° F.
The special metalized polyamide polymer is laminated to a thin layer of glass cloth, with a strong fire-resistant adhesive backing. This film is very lightweight at only 5 ounces per square yard, and is easy to apply (just peel and stick). The film is just 6 mils thick and requires a minimum air gap to the heat source of just 1mm, making it perfect for tight installations. Sold by the running foot from a roll that is 24 inches wide*.
This is not the same as the common light-duty "economy" gold film. The fire-resistant adhesive used on this film passes the FAA 12-second vertical burn test. The "economy" film will not! The fire-resistant adhesive is opaque white. The silver backside shows through the clear adhesive used on the "economy" film.
* Minimum 24" wide. Depending on the production run, this film is sometimes supplied slightly wider at the manufacturer's discretion. Sorry, no width choice! Please plan on receiving 24" wide film and consider any extra width to be a free bonus.
Note: We've been asked if this Reflective Heat Barrier Film contains real gold. Frankly we don't know what metallic elements are contained in this gold colored film. However, we suspect that it could not contain real gold at this low price. What we DO know is that it works extremely well.
